Yuval De-Joannes

My Name is Yuval De-Joannes. I live in Moshav Tzafririm in the Ella Valley and I lead tours throughout the country for over twelve years.
My passion for traveling began in my early school days, when I’ve joined the school of environmental studies in the Negev desert. Upon completing my military service as a paratrooper, and traveling the world for a couple of years, I’ve joined Ben-Gurion University and started my academic life.
First, I’ve achieved a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral sciences, and then through Haifa university, a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology. My fieldwork took place in Ireland, on one of the Islands off the west coast, where I stayed for nearly two years.
Upon my return, I tried to put into practice the knowledge of people and history I’ve gained and completed an International tour guiding course, conducted by the Open University, and another tour guiding course conducted by the ministry of tourism. A third course I’ve completed was conducted by the ministry of education. Through the years I’ve received special expertise certificates, from the ministry of tourism in Christianity, Zionism, desert tourism and wine tourism.
From here the road was open to a new career. I’ve decided to focus on Israel, and to put all my energy in exploring it in depth. For me guiding is a passion, if not a call. Every tour I take is different for me. Even if the sites might repeat themselves, they are always fresh for me, cause every time I see them through different eyes, the eyes of those I travel with.
When I’m not guiding I enjoy hiking in Israel and around the world, mountain biking and reading. I guide families and individuals in Hebrew, English and Italian, and offer a wide range of focal points – theological, archaeological, historical, botanical, geological and more. It could be a day tour or a full package tour, all customized to your needs and desires. I use a luxurious Mercedes van, so you can be sure to travel in comfort and safety.
